“This perspective — that technology has definitively surpassed art at the center of creative life — explains why there is so little pathos or drama in Arcangel’s works. Their jaded, self-effacing humor comes out of a clear-eyed belief that, in an age of unthinkable amounts of digital communication, it rings false to make grandiose claims for individual originality or expression. If the works feel minor it is because they start from the point of view that art’s place in the world today is minor.”

-Ben Davis (Cory Arcangel Whitney Review)
